The Red Bull Curates Series presented an exhibition of Dhow Art at the Sheikh Faisal Bin Qassim Al Thani Museum. The exhibition opened on Friday, the 14th of December.

Twenty-five of Qatar’s talented artists were invited by Curator Khalifa Al Obaidly to portray their inspirations. Only six were selected by the curator and a jury to bring their creativities to life each on a life-sized dhow.

As a significant element of Qatari culture, the dhows were an unconventional canvas for the artists to paint, spray and decorate.
